EXTREME anglers Chris Oakes and Dave Taylor hauled in this massive 150lb catfish during a recent trip to the River Ebro in Spain.

The pair embarked on the trip hoping to catch one of the monster freshwater catfish that are growing to more than 200lbs in some parts river.

They chose a guide who once held the world record for catching a 215lb catfish in the waters.

Chris said: “Hours passed and eyes didn’t blink as the baits trotted on down the river and then the calm ebb of water sloshing against the boat was met with absolute insane madness as a huge catfish took the bait and tore off downstream.

“After an arm-busting battle the monster fish was beside the boat and viewed by all in total disbelief.”

Four fish were hooked during the trip, and the pair are already planning their next adventure.
